A KTOA Territory manufacturing company is the best in Wyoming when it comes to exporting products.
The Small Business Administration named L and H Industrial, the Wyoming Small Business Exporter of the Year and the SBA Region VIII Exporter of the Year. L and H manufactures parts for mining equipment.
The honors recognize a direct increase in sales and employment because of exporting and overseas marketing.
Last year the company's sales revenue totaled $92 million and half of that was through exports.
"In 2012, L and H exported over 50 percent of their sales. With that 50 percent of the sales, that employs over 100 people within our company," said Sheridan branch general manager Jay Will.
Will says sales have doubled over the last four years at the Sheridan location and 10 additional employees were hired. He expects 10 to 20 more will get hired over the next few years.
